The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy: Over 600 Natural, Non-Toxic and Fragrant Recipes

by Valerie Ann Worwood (Author)

Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal
There are plenty of good books on herbs, and some of them devote a chapter to
essential oils, but there's nothing comparable to Worwood's work. Her premise is
different from other herbalists--she believes that the most effective way to use
herbs medicinally is by external application or inhalation. Both methods allow
the essential oil to enter the bloodstream without passing through the digestive
tract. Her grasp of basic physiology is somewhat confused, but there's nothing
dangerous in her suggestions. (Worwood runs an aromatherapy clinic in England
and conducts research on aromatherapy.) Her book prescribes oils for everything
from basic first aid and treating common ailments to natural cosmetics and body
care, fragrance for the home and office, and cooking with essential oils. A good
addition to alternative medicine collections.See also Susanne Fischer-Rizzi's
